Favourites that I've come across:
1. The Gunmakers, Clerkenwell EC1
Probably my favourite pub in the country. Great landlord, faultless beer, excellent food. Plenty of choice, with beers normally sourced from London breweries or Purity brewery in Warwickshire. Perhaps the one pub in London that does a good pint of Timothy Taylor Landlord. Clerkenwell is great for a pub night - Jerusalem Tavern, Betsey Trottwood, Exmouth Arms to list just three.
2. The Bull and Swan, Stamford, Lincs.
Stamford is full of great pubs and worth a list itself, but the Bull and Swan has good food and drink coupled with excellent staff. Free house with Adnams + local guests usually on tap.
Any suggestions on others elsewhere?
